After having had the honour of hosting last year’s European Business Organization Worldwide Network (EBO WWN) Regional Meeting in Seoul, the ECCK participated in this year’s EBO WWN’s Meeting which took place from November 26 to 28 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. This was the first meeting of the EBO WWN to take place in Africa. This annual regional meeting coincided with the 6th EU-Africa Business Forum and the 5th EU-Africa Summit. Key topics discussed at the Business Forum included access to and scaling up of electrification, improving job opportunities for the explosive growth of young people entering the labour market, developing the agri-food industry, and improving access to finance for micro-enterprises. In separate meeting, EBO members also listened to presentations from the Vice President of the World Bank for West Africa, Yara, a leading agri-food business, and from the President of the Ivory Coast European Chamber. On European topics, the members discussed European Union Economic Diplomacy and how to apply in their own countries.
